Book reveals Princess Margaret 'considered becoming Catholic'


Noel Botham, in his book, Margaret The Last Real Princess, claims that Princess Margaret, who died last month at age 71, did not convert to Catholicism out of a sense of loyalty to her sister.

Princess Margaret was a high-church Anglican and a member of the most pro-Catholic faction of the Church of England.

Botham said Princess Margaret was also a close friend of Derek Jennings, a senior civil servant in the British government's department of the environment who had converted to Catholicism from the Church of England and who later became a priest.
